The Brand Shen synergy stats shown here demonstrate the areas of his gameplay that do better (or worse) when paired with Shen, compared to his overall stats. Significant differences are areas of focus that highlight how his gameplay changes when paired with this other champion.
Overall, Brand sees a very large drop in his KDA (ratio of kills and assists to deaths) when paired with Shen. His KDA went down from NaN to NaN. This decrease shows that Shen helps Brand perform poorer in ranked League games. Yet, the small difference shows that this performance change is only marginal.
When Brand tries to synergize with Shen, he gets a little increase in his complete damage dealt. This change may indicate that Shen supports by providing cover for him to dish out more damage or that his presence on the team also helps increase the game's duration. Similarly, when Brand is played together with Shen on the same team, he usually scores many fewer killing sprees compared to when he plays alone. This is contrasting evidence that he is worse when playing alongside Shen.
Moreover, when Brand plays with Shen on the same side, he on average takes a little less damage than when he fights alone. Getting dealt not as much damage could mean that Shen does a decent job of protecting Brand in teamfights.
There is no universally accepted best ally for Brand that will no matter what be his best synergy. However, Shen is a very typical companion for Brand. By being on the same side as Brand, he has no effect on their win rate by 0.0% to 52.1%. This signals that there is not really a strong strategic relationship between Brand and Shen that results in them performing at the same level together than without each other.
Shen has a lower difficulty than Brand. That means Brand players don't need to be cautious when enlisting Shen teammates to fight alongside, as they will have to have a relatively low level of skill to play well with you.
Fighting alongside, Brand players will likely see an overall large increase in your team’s capacity to provide a lot of utility for your team. Combined, these champions may be able to carry with the power of their abilities.
In contrast, by bringing Brand and Shen together, you will not be granting your other allies a great deal of anti-tank damage dealing potential. We recommend you have other champions on your team that neutralizes this gap in this pairing's capabilities.
Regardless of your Shen ally's ability, you should focus on maximizing your gold income, warding to avoid ambushes, and clearing objectives. If you heed this simple advice, you should do well anyway.
